Charge your camera battery BEFORE you go to the tracks.

More than likely, Q595, and no they won't return.  The go to Birmingham for return to the BNSF.  Most of the stray BNSF engines that wind up in Avon head out on Q595 for return to the BNSF.

Yesterday evening Q 688 had a nice set of H2 BNSF's running the train. Could be the same units?  Uhh.....52xx & ~48xx~ maybe.

Yup, Q595, passed Vincennes at 12:00. BNSF 52xx & 42xx. They came south on tuesday, north on wednesday and south again today. Maybe they will come back.
BTW, Q645 had the CSX 9000 leading. Diversity in Motion?
